At Gomer, we have seized the opportunity to increase the understanding of how learning in school links to the real world we live in, by enriching our curriculum with integrated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) projects for half a day a week in every child’s class.  We aim to enable our pupils to be motivated by and understand real world applications of STEM subjects by experiencing hands-on STEM activities that innovate, inspire and bring learning and career opportunities to life.

We use the gSTEM wheel to help us structure our gSTEM work. With thanks to Dave Hill from Portsmouth University for providing this for us.

Engineering Habits of Mind (EHoM) 

Detailed below (with thanks to the RAE) are the EHoM which help drive gSTEM and structure our facilitation of the children’s learning. EHoM transfer across our curriculum and compliment our own Foundations of Learning.

Why the need? Please see the presentation below.
